When this year's Oscar nominations were announced Thursday morning, Meryl Streep says she was fast asleep, firmly convinced that her scene-stealing work in August: Osage County would be overlooked by the Academy.
"They all say, 'Oh, she doesn’t have a chance'… because I'm so old news, you know," Streep told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview set to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, as she recounted her standing among oddsmakers.
"There is no such thing as talent being old news. That doesn't get old," DeGeneres reminded Streep amid wild cheers from the studio audience. Indeed, Streep had earned another nomination – her 18th, setting an Academy Awards record for an actor or actress.
